Are there certain roles that your existing team doesn’t have the resources or the time to handle? Whether your integration firm is large or small, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the never-ending list of tasks associated with running a business.
As we promised in this post, we’re going to talk in detail about a few areas of your business that you may consider delegating to the pros – as well as information on how NSCA can get the right experts and solutions in place.
The first topic: human resources. Benefits administration, compliance, time off, staff recruitment – hearing these words may be reason enough to consider outsourcing part or all of your human resources functions. This department can sometimes become a catch-all that not only manages the obvious HR functions, but is also responsible for safety, employee enrichment, etc. Developing a team with the expertise to handle all of these different tasks – which are vital to the success of the business – can be a full-time job on its own, which is one reason to consider outsourcing.
It also allows your firm to share the burden of legal liability and ensure compliance when it comes to HR threats such as wrongful termination, safety violations, or sexual harassment.
There are many choices for outsourcing HR functions, depending on your needs and in-house capabilities. Perhaps recruiting top talent is an area of struggle for your current HR team; this critical function can be turned over to a company that focuses solely on talent identification and recruitment. The same holds true for payroll, benefits administration, etc.
There are also software services that can advise existing HR staff on core areas of human resources, including step-by-step instructions and tools on employee handbooks, policies and procedures, etc. These tools can also serve as valuable resources when questions arise.
